Region 'Vintage Champagne' - Year 1990
|drink soon||This year saw perfect conditions for vintage champagne. The wines were ripe and flavoursome|
Almost half of the region was affected by the frosts that came in April, and cool conditions during the latter part of spring affected the flowering, which was prolonged. However, a hot, dry summer saw the development of a bumper crop and notably big grapes. The rain that fell in September was welcome, and helped the ripening process.
